My career started as an intern in the corporate industry while also training in commercial fitness centers. I grew in California as a Supervisor of a military fitness facility. Once I moved back to Houston, I continued pursuing growth within the fitness realm at Phillips 66 as a Health Fitness Specialist. Currently, I am the Assistant Program Manager of a great team and amazing facility. I hope to not only teach but learn through the development of others. I thrive in training members physically and mentally. Strengthening others in all aspects of their lives is what I see as my true purpose.

I chose to pursue a career in corporate wellness because I have a passion for helping people upgrade their overall quality of life. To me there is nothing more rewarding than to help someone feel healthier both physically and mentally. When someone tells me they aren't hurting anymore or they have more confidence to try movements they were once uncomfortable with, it makes my day.

I fell in love with the lifestyle of achieving high levels of health, fitness and human performance at a young age. I have been dedicated ever since to absorbing as much information as I can to make myself that much more qualified in helping the largest population possible. I aim to equip myself to help everyone from elite athletes to the population needing special attention due to injury or various issues to be worked on and around to achieve their utmost levels of fitness and quality of life.

Currently I am a Health and Fitness Specialist with the Wellness Center. As someone who used to only do aerobic activities like running and swimming- incorporating more anaerobic training like weight training has changed my life and my relationship with fitness. My goal is to make fitness attainable and approachable for everyone. I want to turn something that can be confusing or scary into something fun and rewarding. My goal is to help others become confident and stronger!

As a former D1 athlete, I spent way too much time in the training room trying to rehab injuries that could've easily been avoided if I'd taken strength training seriously. As someone who used to hate stepping into a weight room, I absolutely love working with clients who may be hesitant about learning how to strength train. Regardless of whether someone has been an athlete their whole life or is just stepping into the gym for the first time, I think a properly programmed and executed exercise plan can make you feel stronger from the inside out.
